Recognizing Interscholastic Athletic Administrators’ Day on December 15, 2020.

    Whereas school athletic programs develop young people physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally through the life lessons learned through participation and competition;

    Whereas interscholastic athletic participation is an integral part of a student’s educational experience and enhances the learning process;

    Whereas athletic administrators are committed to developing and maintaining comprehensive education-based athletic programs which seek the highest development of all student athletes;

    Whereas athletic administrators fulfill professional responsibilities with honesty, integrity, commitment to equity, and fairness;

    Whereas athletic administrators preserve, enhance, and promote the educational values of athletics in our schools through professional growth in the areas of education, leadership, and service;

    Whereas athletic administrators embody high standards of ethics, sportsmanship, and personal conduct and encourage coaching staffs, student-athletes, and community members to commit to these high standards as well;

    Whereas during the COVID–19 pandemic, now more than ever, we need school leaders, including athletic administrators, who prepare, plan, and endeavor to secure student safety and well-being;

    Whereas during the COVID–19 pandemic, athletic administrators have been at the forefront of overseeing their secondary school educational programs, as re-opening requires wisdom in preparation, adaptation, change, and relearning to be shared with other school officials; and

    Whereas the COVID–19 pandemic has shown the importance of athletic administrators and interscholastic athletics during a critical moment in our Nation’s history: Now, therefore, be it


That the Senate—

(1) supports the recognition of Interscholastic Athletic Administrators’ Day on December 15, 2020;

(2) commends athletic administrators for their commitment and leadership provided to student-athletes at the secondary school level, especially during the COVID–19 pandemic; and
